Gigabyte R7 problem

Q: Gigabyte R7 problem

I just got a gigabyte R7 260 in the mail changed my psu to a 500 watt and turned on my computer everything looks good I ran the cd to install the drives and it crashes every time when installing. So I go to device manager to try to update drives it says they are up to date , but there is a problem with it and it isn't using resources, weird thing is my on board graphics say the same thing now.So do I need to disable 1 or ? .I have never had problems installing a card before.I ran a dxdiag it shows no graphics at all, but that now I'm running 32 bit weird . thx for the help

What is says on both =Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52) I don't know how to change this

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a Western Digital 1 TB USB 2.0 that I have connected to a computer that has Gigabyte connection to my NAS which can handle Gigabyte speeds.

I am only getting 30.1MB/s.

Is there any settings I can do to windows so that it can send faster?

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit.

A:USB2.0 HD Transfer over Gigabyte Network to Gigabyte NAS

You're doing well. Large file transfers on my system via USB 2.0 are only about 24 MB/s. I did notice when I plugged my Seagate USB 2.0 external into my SIIG USB 3.0 card, sequential reads and writes were about 15% improved. I just plugged the USB 2.0 drive in while I was waiting for USB 3.0 docking stations.

If you have a free PCIExpress slot you may get some improvement plugging the USB 2.0 into the USB 3.0 card. But using SIIG USB 3.0 docks and WD caviar black internal drives I find the drives run at full speed. Only thing is now the price bubble is preventing me from increasing my stock of internal drives.

Before installing my OS i could not get video on my screen. After taking the card out I could load bios and the screen was fine. Now after loading up Windows 7, I plug in my GTX 670 and there is no video whatsoever. Is there something I need to do in BIOS? My motherboard is a ga-z77x-ud5h, with 16 GB ram and i7 3770k. Only running 1 monitor. Should I try to plug the monitor into the card itself?

Have you cleared the CMOS with the jumper on the board? Thats the first thing that I would try. That will set the bios to default settings and may allow you to boot the machine up again.

Greetings all!

There's nothing like a problem to encourage joining a forum and this is no exception.

I am currebtly trying to "upgrade" my computer by installing a Gigabyte GA-M55S-S3 mobo with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000 AM2 processor and 4Gb of DDR2 PC2-6400 RAM. Everything seems OK for about one minute and then the power just cuts out. It's as if the processor has overheated but surely not in one minute (the fan is working).

All suggestion greatefully accepted

A:Gigabyte GA-M55s-S3 Problem

You failed to tell us about your power supply.

If you have a cheap generic one then that is probably of concern. You have a powerful computer. Therefore you should have bought an expensive one. Like this one.

please help.
I have just bought an AMD duron 1.2Ghz and tried installing it on a GA-7ixe4 mobo.

upon powerup there are no beeps, and no video out. But there is power becuase the cpu fan is working.
I've tried changing video cards (AGP and PCI), swapping memory (pc 100 ), even taking the mobo out of the case to ensure no unintentional earthing.

Even if i disconnect the monitor, i get no beeps.(surely i should get an error beep here)

The previous owner of the mobo had a 1.2G athlon, with pc 100 sdram.
I'm completly stumped, and have no idea if it's thje board or the cpu that is failing

Appreciate any comments/suggestions


A:Gigabyte and duron problem

You wont get any beeps if the cpu is not recognized, which sounds like your problem. Make sure you have all the settings correct for the cpu, check the manual and go over all the settings again. Make sure the power switch wire is connected to the board, try reseating the cpu, make sure the video card is fully in the slot.

Hi Guys I'm having a problem with my network card I have a realtek onboard network card which i have been using for over a year with no problems Over the weekend i upgraded my psu and gpu now every few hours i lose network connection (Gigabyte NIC Onboard with mobo) Problem What happens is that ill be on the net or playing wow and ill lose connection and Problem with Onboard NIC (Gigabyte mobo) i look in the taskbar and the network icon Problem with Onboard NIC (Gigabyte mobo) has a X on it and telling me there is no network cable plugged in even tho there is The only way to fix it is to restart the pc or I have to go into device manager disable the nic and re-enable it and it gets fixed again The problem is that I dont mind this happening but when it happens in arena I cant get back on time and I dont know Problem with Onboard NIC (Gigabyte mobo) why its happening I deleted the original drivers that came with windows and downloaded the drivers from gigabytes website for my realtek that didnt change anything i changed my cable and ports on the router that did nothing as well but i know it has nothing to do with router or cable because there is other people using the same router and nothing happens to them Anyone have any idea why this would happen also power save mode on the nic is disabled before anyone suggests that this is driving me insane

1st if you still have your old psu, stick it back in for testing in and see if you get the same problem. If the problem goes away then you might have a faulty PSU. If the problem persists with the old PSU then the on board network card might be knackered ... let us know how it goes

A:Problem with a Gigabyte video card

What inputs are available on the monitors, VGA, DVI, HDMI etc? Also what outputs are available on the Video card, VGA, DVI-D, DVI-I, HDMI etc. I ask because DVI-I can easily be converted to VGA with a simple inexpensive adapter. Also monitors of that size should have more than just a VGA connector, or is it just that your calling them VGA monitors?

I'm trying to troubleshoot the issue I'm having and am hoping to leverage the expertise on this website. I recently bought a GA965P-DS3 board and am using it with a Conroe 6700 processor with 2G of Corsair 6400C4 800 RAM. I set stuff up with a PCI-Express video card and I just cant get it to display anything. The board and card are getting power (fans work) but cant get the BIOS setup to show up. I'm wondering if there is a board setting I'm missing (searched the manual, this forum and google w/o luck) or that the board is simply bad. video card works in another system...

Check the card is securley in

Check you've plugged your monitor into your graphics card and not any onboard ports.

When teh comp does boot up, check to see if the card is conflicting with anthing else

Find out if the card is compatable with your motheroard

A:Problem with Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M and memory

Hi, as the stick showed errors on working pc, then there must be a problem with the stick and you should just replace it, if the two 256mb work ok, and the system boots ok and works ok then it is just a dodgy 512mb stick. faulty ram does not necessarily have the fault/s at specific memory addresses only, and i suspect that memtest probably does not check the memory addresses in a rigid sequence (123etc..) so this might explain the varying amounts of bytes checked before it comes across the faulty addresses. Sounds like a dodgy shop to me with dodgy techs, as for the memory seemingly working ok in slot 1 of the broken pc! this is also probably down to which memory addresses are read first by the controller and maybe the error only accur when the addresses are read or written to in a particular sequence.

Initially the problems looks like one where there is hdd corruption or corrupt system driver and sometimes filesystem or partition table errors but if the memory fails memtest in working pc then that is the problem.
hope this was of some help.

I've just got a new gigabyte a75m-d2h motherboard and when I turned it on, nothing happened. I'm guessing it's my PSU.
My PSU is LC-B350ATX 115/230V.

What PSU should I get?
How do you know how much volts a motherboard requires?

A:Gigabyte A75M-D2H problem, possibly PSU?

That is a VERY low quality pw supply and regardless of whether it is working now or not, I would recommend replacing it with a quality unit.
How do you know how much volts a motherboard requires?Click to expand...

Voltages are standard; ie 3.3V, 5V, and 12V it is the wattage requirements that vary. The wattage you need is dependent on many variables; what cpu is installed, what video card is installed, how much ram, number of drives, number of fans in the case, etc. Post your exact system specs and we can recommend a decent pw supply for you.

I have spent around hours of my time figuring this out and i still have had no luck Basically the problem is that I received a computer from a friend which has the following specs Gigabyte Windows with Chipset Installing Problem which would affect installing windows Gigabyte motherboard Problem Installing Windows with Gigabyte Chipset model GA- I P-G Western Digital Hard Drive model wd bb gb second edition Intel Pentium gh HT hyper threading The problem obviously happens when I try to install windows xp that It cant detect any hard disks I have already run Western Digital Diagnostics tool and GParted and the hard drive works fine the problem is windows setup doesn t detect it or BIOS for that matter What seems to be a bigger problem is that I cant find a driver for windows to load when pressing F that actually detects the hard drive The hard drive is an EIDE hard drive the Gigabyte motherboard has an EIDE scanning system that finds the hard drive in both Raid and ATA mode in Raid while scanning it finds it instantly were as ATA it takes around seconds Im assuming that Raid is the proper option and the raid array is set to normal mode Here are the following drivers for the Gigabyte i have tried none of which work http www gigabyte com tw Service RSS RSSFeed aspx Class amp Product amp Search Driver and http hardware mcse ms archive - - - html there also doesn t seem to be a driver for the specific motherboard model GA- I P-G All the drivers fall under GA- I P without the G Here is a link to the Gigabyte website for the motherboard http www gigabyte com tw Support Motherboard Driver Model aspx ProductID However there are no drivers listed Are there some BIOS settings that need to be done in order for just the windows install to detect it or is there something that I am missing BTW in bios in peripheral settings Gigabyte has some GigaRAID system which can be disabled and has the ATA and RAID settings however last time I did this it didn t even detect the hard drive at all Anyone got anything on how to solve my problem im pretty sure its a driver for the gigbyte intel and not for the WD hard drive but I could be wrong I also forgot to mention one important thing the computer itself detects the hard drive without any problems i e when I first got the computer and it tried to boot off windows it had no problems windows didnt fully boot though because some files on the hard drive became corrupted which is why I am formatting it Likewise when I used Western Digitals Diagnostic tools and created a NTFS partition and i put the hard drive as first priority it came up with the error NTLDR missing which means that it detected the hard drive but windows isn t installed on the operating system If nothing works i may have to resort putting the hard drive in another comp hope it detects it without any probs and install windows that way this however can create problems with different chipsets as windows installs different drivers nbsp

Firstly hey all,
this is my first post on these forums

What am i looking an answer for my following question:

Just bought a Gigabyte GA-965P-S3 rev 1.0 and a Gainward 7900GS. The system just won't post. I went to a friend, tried to boot with his x1900XTX or something like that ATi all went all...also his MSI SLI mobo managed to post with my video card. Now, i am feeling i am watching a SF movie: all computer components work but not when assambled together. Do you have any ANY idea what could cause this?

PS: Full sys spec: Gigabyte GA-965P-S3 rev 1.0 mobo, 2x1gb ADATA ddr2 667, Gainward 7900GS video card, Spire 500W PSU. Nothing else connected to the mobo atm.

hi everyone, I have a critical problem with my Motherboard and processor, at first I had a a Gigabyte GA-K8NS pro Mother board with an athlon 64 +2800 processor, this mother board stop working suddenly without any warning. then I baught a GA-K8NXP motherboard and I used the same processor because it seemed working, this one worked also for sometime and had the same problem, iam not a computer expert but I noticed that the motherboeard starts without the processor, and also it starts with the processor but without the ram....but when I put them both on, the DDR-VOLT led looks as if not enough electricity is reaching it and it is fainting, then suddenly it stops.
NOTE: In the little time the computer starts with both of the ram and processor on, there is no signal from the VGA card (nVIDIA XFX 6200 AGP).

Is this problem in the MB or the Processor,and what can I do.

A:Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2C Motherboard Problem

Test the RAM, one stick at a time using MEMtest86. It could be a motherboard fault, the RAM, or even the power supply.

DUAL channel will only work with identical sticks of RAM (ie: same size...and preferably same speed). Speed won't matter as much, as most motherboards will then simply run at the speed of the slowest stick.

I did a clean install of Windows 7 on my machine, which uses the Gigabyte 965P-DS3 chipset. The LAN drivers that come with the install CD don't work, and neither do any of the drivers on Gigabyte's site. In fact, there are no Windows 7 drivers available for the LAN, as far as I can tell -- and the Vista or other drivers don't work to get me hooked up to the net (note, I'm using a wireless PCI card which I connect to the net wirelessly with).

Does anyone have any experience with this issue? Am I missing something? Is there some kind of work-around?

Hi Everybody

Some years since I last posted here. Just goes to show how more reliable and stable hardware and software has become!

Here is my problem

In 2005 I bought a computer with a Gigabyte MB Model GA81915P duo pro Rev 1

This mb provides 3 IDE channels and 4 Sata channels with intel 915p chipset and Via VT6410 raid controller

The system was set up in the retailer with 1 x 160mb ide hard drive.

I have bought 2 sata hard drives that I wish to install without raid configuration and remove the ide drive. The bios set up will not allow me to enable the sata ports.

I can navigate through bios setup main menu items but cannot navigate through or change within say advance bios features, I can read them but the up down arrow keys do not work. So I cannot enable the sata ports [which are currently disabled.

Any suggestions please

I have a Gigabyte Gamer 3 motherboard with an I7 processor, with on board Intel graphics processor.
I have this installed via Windows 10 along with an NVDIA GTX650 graphics card. Recently if I do a full "reboot" after the windows logo comes up all the monitors go into sleep mode and the system does not boot,.
To get the system to boot up with both graphics drivers installed, I have to either power off the PSU or go into the BIOS and then exit without saving changes. The system then boots fine until another "restart".
Fast boot works fine also, it's just when Windows does a "restart".
Any ideas anyone?
I have disabled the onboard graphics temporarily and the system works fine every time, but before both used to work without any problems.

Just built W7 box with GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H motherboard. Everything works fine except the onboard audio will not pump out any volume, I'm not a gamer so I've got a cheapie set of non-amplified speakers. I crank up the volume level as high as it will go and can barely hear the speakers. Pluged in a set of earbuds from my ipod and can hear everything fine (although volume is at the max). I've checked drivers and all availible settings from windows but can't fine a solution. Any ideas?

A:Solved: GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H Audio Problem

You really need a set of powered speakers. You are not going to get the volume you desire out of a non powered speaker. I have seen inexpensive sets of powered speakers for as low as $10. Though these don't give you the sound quality of the higher quality/priced sets, they would work until you could afford something better.

Another thing I have done is connected my sound card headphone output to my home stereo.

sy-g said:

Do you think I have been advised wrong and have ended up buying a too low of a watt PSU?
Click to expand...

Yep! But I suspect you knew that already. From your system specs I would be looking at at least an 800W PSU. If you go ahead and buy a new one make sure that it comes from a reputable manufacturer. It won't be cheap but it will breathe new life into your struggling system. I'm in Australia and would expect to pay upwards of A$180.00 for a good one. A way to check the quality (by no means definitive) is by it's weight - heavy usually indicates good heatsinks and therefore most likely good quality parts.

Hi guys,


Perhaps this question already answered on any forums,
but I can't find decent answer to my problem.

I have a GA B75M D3V (bios version F9), paired with
Intel Core i5 3550 (Ivy Bridge), 2 x 4 GB Patriot Extreme DDR3 PC1600.

Installed Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1 on it.

Strange problem is, after using my computer for some time, perhaps an hour,
or more, randomly, I can't completely shutdown my PC.

After clicking shutdown on start menu, my PC react normal.
But, after a while, the PC (case and everything inside it) like in stall state.
and the monitor goes blank (no signal from the PC). So I have to press power button for 4 seconds to completely shut it down.

This problem randomly appears. I've just install my windows for about a week.

Any clue or idea of what might caused it ?

Hi there,

I've recently got this baby up and running but I've been getting LOADS of blue screens, some I can see as "Memory_Management" and some I don't recognise. I don't do any overclocking and everything is left at default, FSB, Voltage, Ram Timings, etc.

I also did a Prime95 Blend Torture Test and it came up with one error after I think around 2 hours or so of testing.

I've monitored the temperature closely and the System and CPU temperature never got above 50C. The GPU runs hotter but I think never more than 100C. I have no idea about RAM, PSU or HD though but I mean it's not boiling though its warm after hours of load.

I've also tried upping the CPU and RAM voltage to 1.35V (From 1.325V) and 2.1V (from 1.9V) but no improvements.

Anybody have any idea what's wrong?!

You might email Gigabyte. The way I'm reading this:

You might need the 5-5-5-12 timings rather than the 15.

Well firstly that computer will never be good for performance due to it's limited upgradablilty. Secodly 160w PSU seems very very low watage even for only a P4 and 768mb of RAM. I would upgrade the psu to a high quality of at least 400w before you even bother with a new graphics card. Try and re-install the onboard graphics driver and upgrade the PSU first. Or just by a brand new system like the one below.

Hello everyone,

I just thought I could write on this forum to see if anyone could help me.
I have a Gigabyte motherboard (GA-7VM400AAM(F)) with an ATI videocard X850XT AGP and 1 GB of Kingston memory (2x512Mb). I also have an ATI All-in-wonder video card. What happens is that when I use either of the video cards, I cannot watch flash video on my computer such as on YouTube or others. It says that Explorer or Firefox must close and sometimes the system even crashes. I know I have an old rig, but still it should work. I have no idea of what is happening and I am suspecting a compatibility error between my motherboard and video cards.

i just read that gigabyte shows 15c MORE then the normal. but when i touch the heatsink it soo hot.

the reason being is that i want to overclock my cpu but with 65 - 75c its risky.

Hello guys,

Well my a little over a year old motherboard has developed a problem in which the SATA controller will stop functioning suddenly, freezing my computer and then upon rebooting it, SATA drives will not be detected.

Is there ANYTHING I can do to try to repair it? I've scanned the motherboard and it doesn't seem to have any bulging capacitors or burnt modules that can be seen with the naked eye.

Anything specific I should be looking at?

Thanks in advance!

Refer to this thread for all symptoms:

EDIT: I just noticed that I didn't finish the topic name, I just put in the model number but did not specify what's the problem!

Can a moderator please change the name to: Gigabyte GA-K8N-Sli Motherboard SATA function: Dead


A:Gigabyte GA-K8N-Sli

Well guess what. Just like in the symptoms described, I am currently posting from the faulty computer, that has been running straight for 15 hours without a hitch.

What could be the problem? A small short around there?

Hello, I have a gigabyte ga-k8n pro sli mb and a samsung sp2504c sata hd that I am trying to install latest win7 beta on. I get to the point where I choose to do a clean install and I see my hd in the list but it asks for drivers for hd or mb. I am thinking it is for the mb. It gives me the option of browsing for the driver. I can install xp pro on this same set-up without any trouble. Any help would be great. Thanks.

dlettau, welcome to the forums.

If you have it set to SATA in the bios, what it is most likely asking ofr is the SATA drivers. Start here,

View forum - nForce Drivers •

and see which set is working best with the NF4 chipset and download it. Once downloaded extract it. Place the extracted files on a separate hard drive/partition or USB key (if you have one, then during the Windows install point it to the folder that contains the SATA/RAID INF.

Every time I order a new hard disc or SD-card or whatever I get When be 1GB one gigabyte? will a bit angry and a bit disappointed at When will 1GB be one gigabyte? how regulators and the industry mismanage consumer trust in what e g quot GB quot stands for Why can t they agree on that GB on the package should show as GB of available space in a device xGB available space as shown in my phone is close to a loss of space and the larger storage devices get TB harddisc for instance the bigger the gap will be I am fully aware of the discussion around When will 1GB be one gigabyte? the quot gibibyte quot and all that raindancing But honestly if I were to sell my slowish Volvo with horsepower and say in the ad that it has quot harsepower quot coming up with a way to calculate that how legit will that be So I wonder if you people know about any consumer group out there that needs a fistful of dollars in support every now and then in order to fix this bs nbsp

and is G skill 3 gb F3-12800CL9T 3gbBNQ good enough?

thnakx in advance..

A:Gigabyte or MSI

Hi vinaypro,
Both of them are excellent boards. the tipping factor may be that Gigabyte has a reputation for having the strictest manufacturing standards in the industry.They also tend to have somewhat better heat dissipation due to more copper being used in the PCB. The Gigabyte GA-EX58 UD3r is a better overclocker (if your into that) and has slightly less power consumption. other than those two areas they run a dead heat in performance. you will be pleased with either of them ,however, being at the same price point i would recommend the Gigabyte.

In a word, no.

I'd highly recommend buying a Corsair power supply, cheap and nasty PSUs (the one you have would fall into this category) cause trouble more often than not. The PSU is not a component to cheap out on.

Using a Zyzel DSL modem/router connected to a switch to share the connection with 4 PC's. .

If I put in a 1000 Mbps Switch, will the pc's attached to the switch ( all have gigabyte NIC's ) move data between themselves at 1000 Mbps or will the modem force the entire network back to 100?

Thanks . .

A:Gigabyte Switch . .

The traffic among computers connected to the switch will stay within the computers, cables and switch; will not go to the modem/router.

I assume, but do not know for a fact, that the switch ports connected to Gigabyte adapters will operate at that bandwidth, and only those connected to 100mbps will operate at the lesser rate.

I'm so curious to see if other Gigabyte users are having this issue:

If the FSB is set to 200Mhz any games in either Win2000 or XP Pro will crash and system will simply reboot (no error messsage). Now, if the FSB is set to anything below 198Mhz, all games run flawlessly. I've checked cpu temp and it's always under 60C. I've tried 3 different types of DDR RAM (Ultra, Kingston & Corsair).

Here's my specs-
XP3200 AMD 2.2Ghz
2 ATA/100 7200rpm MAXTORS 20gb
WIN2000Pro & XP Pro SP1

A:Gigabyte mbd blues

Is your BIOS up to date as far as version? I would agree it is a memory timing issue. Perhaps you can set the FSB to 200 and adjust your memory timings not to the default.


It also appears that you Radeon card is AGP 2X/4X and may not work correctly in the 4X/8X motherboard as it states it only supports 4X/8X AGP cards.

According to Gigabyte, your board supports only 400/533 MHz FSB and DDR266(PC 2100)/DDR200(PC1600) memory. So, I guess the answer is no to both.

A:Asus Vs.

No such thing as "better" per se.

What is the target application or application set? That will define the scope of "better".

I do like the dual RAID support on the Asus board (but my browser is not showing anything on the details tab at NewEgg for that board, so I have not done a thorough compare.

In my opinion, both of those boards are overpriced.

I'm trying to free up space on my labtop and i'm doing a computer analysis on finding what is using up my computer. Tracing where all the memory is coming from and what is using up my space, i've come to find out that through my calculations i've discovered that i am suppose to have at least a gig left. But my computer says that i have barely any memory left to use. Whats going on? need help...

Not trying to be prideful here but i doubt that i had miscalculated. I checked.

A:Unknown Gigabyte

Windows manages your memory constantly depending on what demands open programs and system processes place on it and uses memory for system processes and maintenance when other aps are not using memory.

Space and memory are two different things.

You can determine exactly what is taking space on the hard drive by using Windows Explorer - the size of every file if you want to.

How much ram do you have and what kinds of problems are you experiencing?

Yes I would suggest using only 1 stick at a time until you find the culprit. If you have only 1 sitck, then see if you can't put in a spare or buy another to test it out. As Rick said the only way to be for sure is to replace it or take 1 out at a time.

He can't do online orders from where he is and the only psu that is available to him is the Odin 585.
Should he go for it or is it ultimate crap?

Some of the higher end RAIDMAX units aren't complete crap, same with the AOpen ones. The Gigabyte Odin I'd be more willing to trust but its not that good either, 16 and 18 AMPs on the two +12 volt rails. They can't custom order anything else?

A:Anyone with a Gigabyte GA-7ZXE?

the less than spectacular reviews were probably due to the KT133 chipset which was a very buggy chipset. that is why they came out with the KT133A which helped iron out some of the bugs.

personally I would not buy a board with a KT133 chipset regardless of the price or manufacturer actually I should say I will not buy another KT133 board since I had one KT133A board which I recently got rid of.

well are you making sure you buy good quality psu's and not cheap generic ones? theres a whole bunch of story that goes behind that - just search the forum..

check that there's no shorting to the case?

all power connectors (including extra power for the motherboard if it needs it) connected, and secure?

maybe invest in a UPS or Surgemaster or the likes, because it could also be caused by irregular/spiked voltages coming throught the pc..
